Leprechauns, Elves and Gnomes, Oh My!
In this class you'll use polymer clay, a bit of wire, a strip of aluminum foil, a dab of paint, a found rock or two and your imagination to create a whimsical character straight from the Land of Imagination. Whether you choose to create a Leprechaun, Elf or Gnome, your creation is sure to bring a smile to your face, and, just perhaps, a story or two along with it!

Maureen has been creating clay characters for 40 years, so she knows lots of tips and tricks for making what looks like a difficult process become one that even polymer clay beginners can accomplish. She also brings a wealth of teaching experience along with her as she guides you in the step-by-step process of creating your own clay character.

You will be using molds to create the faces and hands, but you'll also get a lesson in how to tweak the molds so that each creation is a one-of-a-kind.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with polymer clay, it is a man-made plastic clay that becomes permanent when cured in an oven for 30 - 45 minutes at 275 degrees F. Once cured, it is still slightly flexible, but quite strong.

Level: Beginner and above

A Box for carrying home your creation
